Winced and rotated his right arm. “Maybe that’s why they called it Cassandra,” he said. “Wasn’t she the woman who always brought bad news?” via Fantastic short sci-fi story about the moon landings and international politics. Well written, quick and engrossing. I want this in novel form now, please.

Steve Jobs on Educational Entrepreneurism

When you have kids you think, What exactly do I want them to learn? Most of the stuff they study in school is completely useless. But some incredibly valuable things you don’t learn until you’re older – yet you could learn them when you’re younger. And you start to think, What would I do if I set a curriculum for a school?

No matter how old I get, New Comic Book Day will always be exciting.

Something you don’t expect to say while making waffles unless you are the parent of a 2 yr old (and perhaps a geek): “Please take the Google yoyo off of your neck. Now. Thank you.”

Just got my iPad case… The HardCandy StreetSkin (looks like a tire tread on the back… Awesome).

Flickr Says Thanks for All the Fish

It’s really not that big of a deal, but I’ve been a Pro member for the last three years… words like this lead me to think that maybe Yahoo isn’t putting that much long term investment in the Flickr service. Thanks, Flickr… Why only until June 1?We promised you access to your all time data, and we’re disappointed we’ve not been able to deliver on that. We’ve been trying for over a year to get …

Huggies’ New Invention: Jean Diapers? – TIME NewsFeed It’s the end of the world as we know it… (Source:

As technological skills become synonymous with literacy, it is imperative that students learn to use emerging real-time technologies for research, experimentation, problem-solving, collaboration and creativity. Tech-savvy teachers are already taking advantage of these very technologies to build their own skills and lesson plans. The Real Time Web & K-12 Education – In and Out of the Classroom Amen.
